Dear colleagues

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 20th European Society for Vector Ecology (E-SOVE) conference. These past decades have played an enormous role in discovering new aspects on vector ecology, genetics and genomics of vectors and pathogens they transmit, advance technologies on vector control, impact of climate changes, pancontinental vector dispersal and many others. Moreover, the development of new tools for vector surveillance & control is also contributing to the reduction of vector populations and pathogen transmission. The scientific community is also casting light on the importance of defining gaps and needs in medical and veterinary entomology via collaborative projects on a global basis therefore strengthening our networking activities.

But what about the role of social science, anthropology, communication and many other disciplines? How do these factors interact with our fight against vectors? Are vector treatments by professionals in the field more sustainable than citizen participation? Are we using the right language and message to engage communities with science affecting our daily lives? This year´s conference will draw attention to the impact and importance of vectors and vector –borne diseases on landscapes inhabited by human beings and how to make this paradigm most effective to benefit public health.

I am looking forward to your participation and meeting you in Portugal from the 3rd to the 7th of October 2016 at the Faculdade de Medicina Veterinaria, Universidade de Lisboa.

Thank you for your continuous support to our Society and for the great contributes to successful science.

Eva Veronesi
E-SOVE President
